Student Community

There should more to a college experience than classes and laboratories. Our student groups provide many opportunities for our students to become leaders, hone their professional development, give back to the surrounding community, and grow as life-long friends.  Below is a sample of some of the opportunities our undergraduates can experience.

Design, build, & compete
